1st October


A bright if windy morning deteriorated into a pouring storm late afternoon. Most of the interesting stuff today was passerines with counts of 14 Robin, 6 Redstart, 2 Whinchat, 29 Wheatear, 6 Ring Ouzel, 43 Blackbirds, 1 Fieldfare, 66 Song Thrush, 16 Redwing, 1 Mistle Thrush, 1 Reed Warbler, 1 Barred Warbler, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Garden Warbler, 9 Blackcap, 1 Yellow-browed Warbler, 4 Chiffchaff, 2 Willow Warbler, 10 Goldcrest, 1 Spotted Flycatcher, 1 Red-breasted Flycatcher, 133 Brambling , 115 Siskin, 43 Lapland Bunting and 103 Snow Bunting. The best though was another Blyth's Reed Warbler found near nether linnay by once again Rory Tallack; two in two days thats not bad going.
